About Swiss Skeli at Bärengraben Postcard

Swiss Skeli here with a very important Bernese building called the „Münster Cathedral“ in the background the Bernese Alps. The Bernese „Münster“ Cathedral is the biggest and most important of Swiss late Gothic architecture. One sees it from everywhere in the city. The foundation stone was laid in 1421 - think about that, 71 years BEFORE Columbus even discovered America!! The church was built with interruptions until 1575. The tower ended around 1588 at a height of about 55 meters and was years later in neo-Gothic style at a height of 100.6 meters.

The tower has 344 steps until you come to the deck and also the church bells. It has the largest bell in Switzerland. The bells in the tower are rung daily at noon and at 6 p.m. It is possible to stand near the bells when they are rung, but it is necessary to cover one's ears to prevent hearing damage. Over the main portal is one of the most complete Late Gothic sculpture collections in Europe.

Material

This postcard is from around 1900. All cards mounted on white 250 g/m² paper with trimmed edges. Vintage postcard, overpainted with acrylic paint, 13.6 x 8.7 cm, no frame. Signed and dated in pencil on back. This can be easily erased in the event you want to use the card.

The cards are packaged in cellophane with an informative text about the history of the image on each card and when it was first published.

Please note that since these are antique postcards, some might contain small tears, pinholes and/or scratches. Fleshy tries her best to lovingly craft each card, but sometimes a tear might be too close to the overall subject to cut it out. The actual colors might differ slightly from your monitor.

Every postcard is a small, unique work of art!

Delivery throughout Europe and overseas is with normal postal mail in cardboard envelopes so nothing should bend. Postage and packaging are calculated at checkout.
